    Was able to grab the last one that was not spoken for at the Middle Grounds Market behind the Maumee Bay Brewing Co. in Toledo. This is a cool bottle shop and Matt will take great care of you. Check them out!!!

    Was just there. 2 sixers left. You have to ask for it by quoting a line from the movie :)
  6. Is this in stock anywhere near Ann Arbor, MI (I'm there for a few days)?

    Call the Anderson's in Sylvania and ask if you can be put on the list. I got 2 bottles from them but not sure if there are any that are not spoken for. I don't think the Anderson's in Toledo got any.

    The Wine Seller in Ann Arbor just advertised that they have it. Great guys there.

    Just got a case in @Fitzgerald's in Eagle River, MI. Tasty, tasty. Also have a quarter barrel we will be tapping for our closing party on Oct. 26th.

    Same question. Binnys of Naperville and St Charles both said their distributor hasn't got it yet and no one else in the West Suburbs has even heard of it.

    Not true. Cardinal liquor in Joliet had some earlier this wk but I scooped up the last 6er on Tuesday for a whopping $18.99. Haven't heard of anyone else having it tho.
  17. Thanks for the heads up! Was able to grab a 6-pack there. Can't wait to try it.
  18. Unbelieveable brew, shows Bells brewing muscle. Would run with the biggest dogs on the WC. And Im trying to rank among Hopslam and Oracle.

    Thanks...just went to ann arbor instead, much easier than trying to figure out the secret code for Anderson's sylvania

    I just picked up a case at Breski in Harrisburg, PA. Don't know if it was BS or not, but they told me PA got 10 cases and they got 3 of those. I heard the guy from Anchorage Brewing talking about Galaxy hops on the BN so since Bell's 11 has Galaxy, I pounced. $64 for a case, FYI.
  21. I heard from Sicilianos in Grand Rapids that they will have it on the 11th.

    Saturday at noon in Columbus - Whole Foods on Sawmill just got a case and is selling sixers $17.99. Pace High carryout on campus is selling singles, limit two $3.99 ea.

    God WHY did I wait until today to track this down?

    Anyone know of Northside-ish Chicago places that have this, even a single bottle, please send me a B(owel) M(ovement).
    I'm a huge Bell's and Spinal Tap fan so I'd love to get just one bottle!

    I snagged a sixer at Family Liquors in Homewood last night. Last one on the shelf but not sure if there was more in the back. Tried one and I must say it is one of the best red ales I've had. Fantastic stuff.
  25. The stuff is flowing like water in Ann Arbor...most places $16.99/sixer

    As of a half hour ago, still can find sixers on the shelf in Indy. $17.99

    I'm having no luck here. Ive had one place say they already got it and sold it all, dont know if I believe that or not, one said they tried to order it and it wasn't available and another had no idea what I was talking about. I only tried the 3 because I was still under the impression that Michigan hadn't gotten it yet.

    Wow..this is amazing. Was up there on Wednesday night and most places didn't know what it was or said they hadn't heard when yet. Ahhh...how I long for the days of honesty.

    Chicago Binnys on Grand. It's in the back, have to ask. $17
  30. Hello. My Binnys doesn't have it yet, but I scored at South Loop, Noble Grape (a small wine shop), and 3 at Moreno's. The oddest was Moreno's. 26th Street. Little Mexico. Being a 6'4" Gringo, donning Tommy Bahama wear, shorts, Keen sandals, well that was quite an otherworldly beer buying adventure. How they were able to get this coveted nectar, who knows?!??!! Didn't inquire. My money was as green as everybody elses. Thanks.

    They only got ONE case and are limiting ONE bottle per customer, but one's better than none, right?

    These seems to be proving harder to get then BCBS lol. I've called various places around here and no one has gotten it yet. Im hearing today, Friday even next week from some places...

    Got the last six pack at The Anderson's in Toledo today, it was a nice surprise to see it on the shelf. Paid $17.99 for it.

    The following Columbus, OH places either never had it or are out: Whole Foods Lane, Whole Foods Dublin-Granville, Weilands, The Andersons, Savor, Market District and Blacklick Wine.

    Pace High Carryout still had four single bottles last night at $3.99/ea but no longer seem to be enforcing a limit

    It still amazes me that it seems like everyone BUT Michigan has gotten this already
